We gave Veli Joze a go as it was our first night in Rovinj and overall, it wasn't a let down. Again as with pretty much everywhere in Istria, the service was impeccable. Always with a lovely smile.

Food was pretty good. The marinaded anchovies starters were beautiful. Sweet, tangy in a subtle way and very flavourful. Definitely a starter I'd recommend.

The other calamari starter was lovely. beautifully seasoned and garlic flavoured - sauteed ever so lightly - really fresh tasting.

Grilled octopus main was lovely. the sides to it states potatoes and spinach but its actually potatoes and chard.

The lobster tagliatelle was not bad. I felt that the tagliatelle was made from fresh, but maybe has been made quite a few hours before? It was a bit squidgy and had too much bite. The lobster sauce it was in was PERFECT. Beautiful sauce and perfectly flavoured. It did come with lobster but a very very small amount. I'm not for massive portions, but I think they went a bit too 'cheap' on the lobster. It was also in its shell. I enjoy taking it apart, but I think the dish would work better if the lobster mean is nicely blended into the pasta and sauce.

We stopped in for some mussels and calamari late on Thursday night and they were happy to service and nearly midnight. The mussels were good but not spectacular other overall the experience was great and I would recommend this to anyone else.

Lovely restaurant offering lots of seafood and a reasonable price compared to other restaurants close by. Service is good and fast. House Wine is only from 15 Kn a glass!

This restaurant has been recommended to us by a local so we thought we’d try it. Unfortunately it didn’t meet our expectations. We didn’t feel very welcome from the staff. The food was OK, we ordered octopus salad to share, which lacked in flavour and for our mains we’ve had risotto with seafood, rice was cooked to perfection and calamari were nice but unfortunately both meals were too salty for our taste.
